“They changed it tactically when they had to” ex-Premier League manager praises Arsenal after win

Chris Wilder has praised Arsenal for their all-around performance in the win against Leicester City.

The former Sheffield United manager was pleased to see Mikel Arteta’s side doing all the right things required of them in the match.

“I thought Arsenal were outstanding all over the pitch,” Wilder said on the BBC as quoted by HITC

“They had everything, they put their bodies on the line, two centre-halves were excellent. They changed it tactically when they had to. The spirit of the team was superb, the keeper made saves, so everyone contributed on what was a great day for Arsenal.”

This win showed several things that are right at Arsenal and it can only get better.

However, we need to watch out for complacency now and ensure it doesn’t creep into the squad.

The absence of European football means we could easily go on a winning run considering that our players would get enough rest on weekdays.

Arsenal’s next match is against Watford before we face Liverpool.

If we can beat the Hornets and the Reds, this team could easily finish inside the top four, as long as none of our important players gets injured.

For now, we celebrate the win against the Foxes and wait for the next team to conquer.

    African Cup of Nations will test us.

      Agreed the only small positive is we don’t really play Pepe and Elneny. But losing Thomas and Auba is going to be huge

      1. Johnze says:

        That will be a good opportunity for AMN. I hope he gets chances.

    Beat the Reds!
    Hmmmm.

    Agree with Brad
    Just imagine if Wenger had a goalie like Ramsdale and adopt a more pragmatic attacking style,the gunner s could have won at least one if not two or three epl title.
    At ht, I was afraid Klopp might be another French clone and let slip a 4 goal lead. Not on your life

  5. Charvakan says:

    There is no chance that Arteta and the team will become complacent. He’s got the right idea: keep working and improving because they can and must do better. It will be a struggle just to finish top six, but there’s no reason it can’t be done. But one game at a time.

    High hope men, am going for premier league and not only top four finish, that is the surprise package I have people who wrote me off.
    With regards to Afcon, xhaka shall be back by then and laca would continue to lead the line less you forget looserpol would well face some consequences when Salah and mane left for the same afcon.

  7. Grandad says:

    I always respected Wilder for taking Sheffield Utd to the Premier League .A great achievement with limited resources.

  8. Big Jay says:

    That’s correct Suleman, even though we will loose more players to the Afcon than Liverpool but they will loose 2 key players that are very influential in the team. As for Lacazette he is the one of the key payers that we don
    ‘t notice we have, he always forces ball forward and that causes goals, and I pray that we don’t loose him and time soon. The team is best with him either hw score or not but he always cause something to the opponent
